In percussion, a jingle is a rattle consisting of a small metal disc, such as those arranged around the frame of a tambourine.

That term is referenced in Bob Dylan's hit song, Mr. Tambourine Man. It is an onomatopoeic term, often used together with jangle. An example of that usage is found in a Frank Loesser song: "I've got spurs that jingle-jangle-jingle as I go riding merrily along".
